2017 Shropshire Congress

Just a reminder about the 2017 Shropshire Chess Congress.

Online entry now available – enter by this Friday to avoid Late Entry fee!

The congress takes place on 6-8 January 2017 at Wrekin Housing Trust, Telford TF3 4AW and will follow the successful formula established last year with a FIDE-rated Open alongside the ECF-graded Major and Minor over five rounds between Friday evening and Sunday.

Our feedback process last year showed a very high level of satisfaction with 97.4% of respondents rating the congress as Excellent or Very Good. However, we are not resting on our laurels and will aim to ensure that the 2017 event is even better with excellent playing conditions, professional administration, unbeatable catering quality and value, and above all, a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Further details are available on our congress website where you can also enter online now –


If you prefer to enter by posting a paper form, you can still pay by cheque. A pdf entry form can be downloaded from the website and please pass on the link to your club colleagues. If you would like a bulk supply of printed forms, or a banner advert for a website, please let me know.
